Hello, CutCardStock fans! Leslie here, and thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! I don’t know about you, but I love creating all-occasion cards almost as much as I love creating birthday cards! Love me a variety! 😉 The cards I’m sharing with you today feature Pop-Tone cardstock that’s on sale this month so be sure to score several colors to compliment your stash! This is some really awesome cardstock that comes in amazing colors! I used the same stamp for both of these cards, colored them slightly differently, and paired the Pop-Tone cardstock with Sundance Linen which really made them pop!
TRIM & CUT:
*Trim the sides from the images stamped on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and colored with alcohol markers.
*Cut two standard A2 size top-folding card bases from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock.
*Cut front layering panels from Royal Sundance Linen 80# Eclipse Black cardstock as well as narrow embellishing strips for the inside of each card.
*Cut slightly narrower front layering panels from Pop-Tone 65# Gumdrop Green cardstock and Pop-Tone 65# Wild Cherry cardstock (one for each card) as well as embellishing strips for the inside of each card.
*Cut inside layering panels from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock.
ASSEMBLE LAYERS, STAMP & DIE CUT:
*Adhere the stamped images to the Pop-Tone 65# Gumdrop Green cardstock and Pop-Tone 65# Wild Cherry cardstock layering panels, and then adhere each to the Royal Sundance Linen 80# Eclipse Black cardstock layering panels.
*Adhere the embellishing strips to the inside panels.
*Stamp a sentiment on each inside panel in black ink.
*Die cut a sentiment for the front of each card in corresponding Pop-Tone 65# Gumdrop Green cardstock and Pop-Tone 65# Wild Cherry cardstock.
*Adhere die cut sentiments to the front of each card.
*Adhere front and inside panels to card bases.
*Add tiny iridescent gemstones. Your colorful all-occasion cards are now complete! 😉
